The Q5.5 features a 5.5-inch 1280x720 display and 5-megapixel camera on its face, a 13-megapixel shooter on its rear, and a 1.4GHz octa-core MediaTek MTK6592M processor at its core.

The Android 4.4-powered Q5.5 is now available for purchase directly from Icon Q for $199 without a commitment. The phone is compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S., but it’s worth noting that it’s got no LTE connectivity.
The Icon Q Q5.5’s specs may not be exactly high-end, but it actually looks like a pretty respectable phone for $199 unlocked, especially for fans of bigger screens. If you’re interested in giving the Q5.5 a shot, you can get it from the Icon Q web store link below.
